Are there any realistic space colonization games? (Cislunar/Moon/Mars/solar system colonies)

    If my grand strategy thread was about leading Information era nation on Earth, then this thread is about mid future space colonies beyond 2030 year.

    It can be about making space stations in solar system or orbiting Earth, or colonizing Moon, Mars and rest of solar system.

    You can do this in Caveman2Cosmos (SVN version only for now), but these games would naturally have higher "resolution" due to better focus on topic.

    • Sol 0 is a nice game, not too in-depth, but certainly good for a couple of hours of building Martian colonies ( http://www.solzerogame.com/ )
    • Startopia remains a classic even today. If you want to build a space station, give it a go, it's really cheap on steam and gog.
    • As grandad1982 mentioned, Surviving Mars is coming out next year and is looking amazing so far ( https://www.survivingmars.com/ )
    • Going waaaaay back, my favorite game long ago was Alien Legacy, a game where you captain a colony ship tasked to colonize a solar system. It's fully voiced, which is rare for games from that time and you should be able to find a copy of it on most abandonware sites.
